Have You Seen? {August 23rd, 2020}

Last Week’s Theme: Stuck

Becoming Unstuck by Megan Ingvoldstad—”Did Moses feel stuck when he found himself on a dry, desert road with a broken dream? Thirsty, as his water container got lighter, I can imagine he sat down in despair and hung his head.”

The Seconds We are Given {Book Club} by Bayta Schwarz—”Tragedies still happen. And yet. Forgiveness, grace and hope would have changed the story so profoundly even if the ‘events’ stayed the same.”

Begging for Release by Sarah Hilkemann—”I don’t know what places have you feeling stuck, or what questions are bubbling to the surface or flowing out of pens on paper. I do want to say that you are not alone.”

Sticky, Murky Messes Are No Joke by Joy Smalley—”But when I am able to set aside my shame, and feelings of lovelessness, I can find peace in the wait.”
